NVIDIA's new cryptocurrency P106-100 mining cards tested

NVIDIA's new P106-100 card tested, made for cryptocurrency mining... but it's just too late

The huge Ethereum mining rush is still going and while difficulty is dropping and the price of ETH itself is falling rapidly, NVIDIA has finally dumped out its new mining-specific graphics cards. Up first, MSI and GALAX models.

YouTuber 'Cryptomined' got his hands-on the new cards, with his video available above.

The new mining GPUs aren't much better than the consumer gaming graphics cards, with 20MH/s of Ethereum mining @ stock clocks, while we have 24MH/s when overclocked. This is what I'm seeing in all of my testing with stock GTX 1060s. MSI however, didn't even remove the label on the box that says 'the most powerful graphics card'... yeah, somehow I don't think so, MSI.
